  1. Gotta rest from doing critter things.

    Thanks, Claudia!
    Hope we all have a good week – it’s certainly starting out right.

  2. @Claudia re story ideas. I’ll tell you what critters raid our birdfeeders – it’s a buncha damn squirrels! We’re surrounded on three sides by thick woods and there are at least two squirrel nests within eyesight.

    I have waged a war of genocide upon this pox of furry rodents, trapping them with bird suet as bait. Soon as I hear that CLANG! of the trapdoor I go outside with my .22 and put em outta my misery.

    Meanwhile Auggie is back inside, refusing to go out, the cowering chickenshit.

  3. Good morning iOTW, and thank you Claudia for your Sunday morning critter post. They are a cute bunch. Puts me in the mood to take a short catnap.

  4. That big, hairy, white dog guarding the front door is named Sasha. If you want a great guard dog that is very protective, fiercely loyal and sheds enough hair to make a big throw rug twice a year, get a Great Pyrenees. This one is a rescue dog, and a real character.

  5. Belly Up sleeping is a sure sign of pure contentment!
    I have WAY too many pictures of my clowns sleeping in ALL manner of orientations!
    Nice collection, Claudia. Thanks!!!

  6. Thank you Claudia for making Sunday’s more special. And thank you fellow IOTWR’s for sharing your pictures.

  7. Evenin’ everyone…

    (Was traveling from the bunker hence the late post.)

    I want to know what they dream of…with ALL that sleep..


    Thanks C!

    Have a great and strong week…

  8. Hey Claudia – thanks for some great pics!! I just LOVE watching them sleep. So precious and when they yawn, the best!

    Say your prayers everyday and thanks, again Claudia for the peaceful feeling!

    God Bless us all!
